  1. They did say the upgrade packs, Luke & Vader, the escape pod and the bunker would all be out by end of year (not to mention the CW). Considering how chopped up December is with holidays that only leaves about two months to get everything out. I just don’t see it happening. Most of that will probably be pushed back. Then the question is, if some of that is pushed back, will that push back on things listed for 2020 (like Rex etc)? It seems like the CW stuff is pushing things like Luke & Vader back already, and if so everything is being part of a domino effect and even the 2020 merchandise will be late.
  2. Product page has all the info. Or the article.
  3. There is also Mortis, if you want something totally distinct. It has a varied terrain type like the earth, but also has massive temples. Or Moraband/Korriban the Sith planet Yoda went to in season six, or any of those very strange planets he went to on the same trip. Moraband is desert like, but has creepy Sith buildings and ruins. There is also Florrum, though thats more desert like. There is also Dathomir (witches and creepy atmosphere with strange pod trees). If you want obscure, you could do Raydonia. It was visited by Obi and Ventress and had an outpost... had. And my last suggestion, Nal Hutta (Obiwan visited there in disguise with Cad Bane). Home to the Hutts the planet is very swampy with green water, but some towns/cities.
  4. There is no problem with something new, and I’m sure I can speak for others who have also expressed the same opinion to you, the problem with each of those things are the consequences they bring with them. Hyperspace ramming has the most consequences. In 5, 000 years that hyperspace was supposed to have existed no one being has ever thought of doing that? Now a big whole is created in the Star Wars Cannon that is created because the movie did not address that, and making up an answer in a comic or a book and calling it cannon is not good enough. Not all fans read or care about the books or comics and it shouldn’t be required like some kind of homework or a “gotcha” that you need to give them even more money to get the full story. To the other commenters who are obvious fans of TLJ: Anyone who gets indignant about someone else’s opinion is just trying to reinforce their own opinion to themselves. I don’t agree with people who liked the movie and most of them will not admit that TLJ was a bad movie, but on some level they know that it is, and because their belief is now threatened in their own mind because of someone else explaining the flaws, they must stamp out that contrary belief. You can still like something that is bad. People will disagree with you, and that’s ok, it’s called diversity and it’s something to be embraced without labeling someone or calling them man babies or someone who even uses a term like SJW or some other name. I have heard many labels and expressions from fans of TLJ. People who dislike TLJ are part of the dark side, or like the post above, it’s a peaceful life to be a fan of TLJ implying that non fans are somehow not at peace. Please understand, most fans that hate TLJ are passionate fans who only want to discus their feelings about a movie that they feel was a wrecking ball for the franchise, but it in no way detracts from your ability to like the movie. Aside from a very small minority of very vocal fans, the people who dislike TLJ, don’t have a problem with those that like the movie. We don’t understand you, but we respect your opinion as your own, but vitriol, divisive and discordant comments and expressions usually come from the fans of TLJ and those comments come in increasing numbers. People who do not like what you like do not need some kind of social correction, it’s just another opinion, again diversity. Before someone reads my comments above and makes some other derogatory comment, as this topic is very divisive on its own, I will not be responding to further comments in this thread. You have your opinions. I have mind. We are both entitled to them without reprisal or recriminations.
  5. Sorry, I was being sarcastic. Bob Iger has stated several times that the reason Solo did poorly is because of “Brand Fatigue”. It’s all a way for them to save face and not admit they made the most divisive movie ever. My personal opinion is that TLJ was one of the worst movies ever made and took more from the Star Wars franchise than it gave and what it gave was problematic (hyper space bombing, and tracking). It is the one Star Wars movie I wish could be unmade, but for me the Skywalker Saga ended at RoTJ, since even TFA had issues, many of which were ignorable but it was the movie that created a shaky foundation for this trilogy.
  6. And suddenly they’re talking about making more movies? This is not something that would be done to fix “brand fatigue“. Just sayin’.
  7. Since CW is a Core set in its own right, missing delivery date by a month or more will turn away many would-be new players. There were many people who were waiting for CW to get into Legion, and with this lengthy delay, they may find another place to dump their money. What can I say? People are fickle. Though Legion is doing well and this will not cause FFG to go out of business (by any stretch of the imagination), nor will Legion be ended from poor sales, the player base will not grow to what it could have been had the CW starter set been advertised as well as the original, and if it was released even close to the suggested release date. Many FLGS will undoubtedly have fewer players enter into Legion and in some areas it’s the difference between having someone or no one to play with. In many areas in the States there are robust amounts of players, so I’m sure it’s hard for you to imagine an area in the US or even around the world where it’s already near impossible to find someone to play. And I am fully aware of TTS, which is great, but I believe it is only a matter of time before it is shutdown and it is always nicer playin irl. It’s all point of view, so if you are lucky enough to be in a area with a lot of player, that’s great, but remember CW could have really helped other communities not so fortunate.
  8. That’s rad.😉😁 Still why not RZ or RZA Trooper. Everyone seems to love acronyms.😊 The Empire would need some kind of hazardous mission troopers for areas that are totally unsafe for humans. It’s a cool idea, in spite of the name.😎😁
  9. They certainly are radtroopers.😳😂 What were the writers thinking? Were they not old enough to have lived through the 80s?😂
  10. I agree with everything you said, except your third point. Legion has a lot of rules that were borrowed from X-Wing and other FFG games. This includes Suppression, which acts a lot like Stress. Instead of ships Legion contains Units, which would be the same as any military unit. Every unit in Legion comes with a card that explains any abilities with simple reminder text as well as stats which is also similar to X-Wing with upgrades that can be purchased as part of its point based system. Where Legion and X-Wing differ is that your movement is not hidden and each player takes turns moving one unit each, until all units in your army have activated, then you repeat for 5 more rounds after the first. Legion is an objective based game where even if you opponent has every unit left, and you only have one, you can still win the game. If Objectives do not give enough narrative, there are also free Operations that you can download from the Legion web page. If you want to learn more, you can download the Learn to Play Guide, which is also free, and it will explain everything in easy to understand terms. The Learn to Play rule book is 32 pages long, but has lots of pictures and about the last 10 pages are just fluff about the “hobby” aspect of the game, so it’s not a hard read.
  11. I’m sure sitting on thousands of units of CW does hurt FFG. There is a big investment in creating all those core sets and the longer it takes to get it to market, means no return on that investment. I’m by no means a financial expert, but I can guarantee this kind of delay (especially of a starter set) will hurt FFG bottom line. Also most investors don’t care about what game is out or which IP is used. They care about a quick and lucrative return on their investment and delays make them squeamish. FFG like any company relies on cash flow from investors. If returns are proven to be slow and don’t measure up to expected returns, again FFG will feel that pinch. Look at me sounding like I know what I’m talking about. 😂😜
  12. Umm... hate to tell you.... 😭😭 Now I just want my SSD and it was delayed cause of my stupid FLGS!😭😭
  13. Rakghouls. Lots and lots of Rakghouls. And when they damage any trooper mini, it becomes a Rakghoul. This would be awesome for Halloween.🧟‍♂️🎃
  14. Or if done correctly he still brings the fear, but the hero that he faces is obviously of a much higher caliber than the people he normally kills in seconds.
  15. I’m guessing you never fenced at a high level. And no, I don’t mean selling stollen goods.😁
  16. I think Star Wars Rebels did a good job too. You can feel how even an elite rebel team is pretty much useless against him. Sabine gets injured and a Jedi Knight and his Padawan are almost killed. The only thing they could do, is escape.
  17. Yeah as bad as FFG may be, I’ve heard some real nightmares about GW, but just because FFG isn’t as bad as the other guy, doesn’t mean they don’t need to fix their ****. Just sayin’.😌
  18. The thing that gets me is that the CW is a whole starter set and there will be many new players who will just be starting with this core. Does FFG have the same level of advertising for its release as the original core? Will there be a “release day” like the original had? I mean, we’re already delayed and there probably won’t be any hype and on top of that LFL has to interfere. Good job killing things before they start, but at least it was a team effort.🤨
  19. But I think the other missing SKU is taken up by the other alternate Obi sculpt Expansion (Europe only). So it means there will probably be 0-0-0/BT-1 in an imperial expansion, as part of LFL’s request to have more GCW stuff right now.
  20. That also belongs to the Imperial faction.🤪 Unfortunately, the Republic gets, “I don’t like sand...”😏😳
  21. Some of the delays (probably most) could also be laid at the feet of LFL. Apparently FFG was all set for CW, but Lucasfilm contacted them and said, “We want you to do some GCW era stuff for us.” And that’s why we have Operative Luke & Vader, earlier than FFG wanted. LFL just keeps screwing up, but I guess it’s like all other bad companies, it stinks from the head.
  22. Not sure what you mean? I have it on every device, and works like a charm. Edit: I spoke too soon. Apparently I can’t download the latest version on one of my devices, so I can’t get the latest database files.😢
  23. I thought one of the two missing SKUs was the resculpt Obi (only available in Europe). My guess is that the other missing SKU has to do with what Alex Davy eluded to in the Notorious Scoundrels interview. He said there was another droid couple coming. My guess is that it will be Empire or Empire/CIS compatible, and probably 0-0-0 and BT-1. Just a total guess. I like your guess better though. We definitely need more CW content and sooner, than later.😊 If anyone knows for sure (especially about the Obi sculpt), sound off.
  24. Unfortunately I ordered three core sets to try to save money in the long run (individual expansions are more expensive), so I’m totally screwed.🥺😭😢 Sorry, hard to deal wth when your temp is 102.🤒 Well guess I can’t play any way. Silver lining?
